Black Cake by Charmaine Wilkerson
One minute you are reading about something that happened decades ago on a Caribbean island, the next you are reading about a woman who grew up in England now living in Italy, and the next you are reading about siblings coming to terms with their mother’s death and details of her life they never knew. Amazingly, it was never confusing, was truly effective, and, really, was just the way I tell a story. The characters were very well developed and realistic. From about halfway through I barely put it down because I wanted to know the rest of the story. It’s a bit heavy, but not overly so. I enjoyed it so much and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good book about family dynamics and secrets.
